Hello Awesome People!
As I write this article I am getting ready for a one fantastic event that Martha Arifin & I have been working on for months now. Tomorrow is our Free Half Day Workshop ‘The Profitable Marketing Forum‘ and we are ready with a great group of Awesome Attendees going to join us.
Even though I have previously run quite a few workshops, I always get a ‘bit of nerves’ which very quickly turns into excitement. Workshops, Live Seminars and the like are always great opportunities to get a massive win. From helping people, getting your name out there, giving out free content and people being impressed saying “Yay – I get you now and I am going to hire you” – I have always liked the massive build up & calm down after an event.
Right now is the ‘Build Up’ for me with all aspects in place and getting ready to let it all play out in profitable style. If you run events of this nature (say the Free Workshop / Seminar Model), you can understand that it’s hard work! Today I am definitely getting more organised and better at these things in comparison to my first ones years ago – phew they were tough work at the start!
What I find very interesting about practising and building one’s skills and experience is how hard things are to do for the very first time. So many learning curves and on so many levels! My first workshop almost killed me and now I find it to be quite energizing and exciting.
My best analogy is learning to drive a car for the first time. To me these days, driving everyday is about as stressful as buying milk or brushing my teeth – but when I first got my learner’s license? It was a daunting, terrifying and sweat covering experience in terror. LOL. From my mother (who is awesome) yelling at me for stuffing something up, not seeing a car out of the corner of my eye, being scared of hitting someone and the like – Oh My Cawd! How Stressful…
Exactly that OH MY CAWD! is my first initial response to trying new things and going through new situations, it can really stress me out. I think for all of us, the first time doing anything takes courage and risks, which can be really tough, but as we get more practise, the second and third time will just get easier.
We know the game, we have a reference point and as ‘Muscle Memory Goes’ – our sub-conscious mind is ready from the first experience ready for next time. So god luck next time you do something for the “First Time”, and remember that it will only get easier 🙂
